So I searched her blog and here is what I found. In her blog post from 4/6/2012 Maggie says "... last night I finally turned in the first draft of REQUIEM (the third and final faerie book) to my crit partners". Later in that post she responds to this question "Can you give us any further information on Requiem? Even just a few words?" with this answer "’s slated to come out in 2013 but I don’t know which season at the moment. Sorry.". No further mentions of it in any of her posts, but on the FAQ on her blog there is a question listed asking "Will there be another book after LAMENT and BALLAD?". Her response - "I have written the third book, REQUIEM, and my editor tells me it is a fine book, but I do not believe it fine is good enough. I will not let it be released until I believe it is more than fine. I can’t tell you how long that will be." There is no date on that FAQ so no idea on how long ago she posted that, but I'm not feeling hopeful after reading any of this. I don't think it's very nice to her fans to treat the 3rd book in this manner. I really love this series and would like to see Maggie give it a higher priority or at least set some kind of deadline for herself. It's been 6 years since Ballad and fans of the series have been waiting (mostly) patiently. Come on Maggie, do it for your fans! (less)

Books of Faerie, #3?
The finale of this beautiful trilogy?!



Okay, breathe Cas. Sorry guys but, I actually love this series. Then, I find out this book is with Luke. Please be the HEA for Luke and Deirdre!

I read a while back (could it've really been last winter?) on her blog that Maggie was writing what she called "WinterNovel". She politely told us that the first two words were "Luke" and "Dillon" and to have a nice day.

I thought about throwing my computer across the room.

Instead, I threw a pillow at it.

Please. Come. out.

Maggie Stiefvater. You've done it again. You just made me fan-girl!!
You know I really wish I could wave a magic wand and It would magically come out.


Life would be so easy if I could do that. If I had a wand I'd also have an unlimited amount of candy floss and I'd also be able to slap Edward Cullen. But you see; I don't.

Personally I loved this book. I actually wanted to marry it and have literary babies with it (No. I'm not that weird)


I just hope that Maggie won't do what sh

In my mind Ballad was the last and it would follow me around trying to drive me insane but then....I saw this and a giant rainbow burst into excistence no really well in my mind it did but anyway
I really hope we get more of james POv and I think Paul would be another interesting character

I just found this on Maggie's tumblr, via the "Stiefvater Question Face" Q&A that she did, concerning Requiem:

"I actually wrote an entire third book, Requiem, last year, and sold it to Scholastic, but then I decided I was not happy with it and snatched it back from my editor.

Scholastic is very good about putting out only work that I’m happy with, so they’ve been kind enough to not send Queen Latifah to badger me, a la Stranger than Fiction.

So it exists. I think I know how to fix it. But I am

Give it to me. I haven't even read Ballad , but give it to me. Or give me a blurb. Or a cover. Or anything written by Maggie. *Cries while trying to keep her cool and failing to do so*

Yay! I thought this was coming out at the beginning of 2014 so I was madly looking for it! I can finally be at rest for a bit! Can't wait and keep writing awesome books!

I asked Maggie about the status of this book a while back....

"It exists, but it was terrible, so I wouldn’t let my publisher take it until I figured out how to fix it. Now it reclines gently in publishing miasma politics timing adventures which I cannot really talk about on the internet."
(full post here: )

So it looks like there are no plans to release it anytime soon. I can't imagine it being terrible, and I'd even pay for a 'terrible' manuscript, Maggie
I'm freaking out! I didn't know there was going to be a third book! Sooooo excited!!!

COME ON!!! The previous book was published in 2009, and it's 2014 right now!!! I only just found out about this series (I know, so sad.) and I had expected the whole trilogy to already be published, and then I realized that the third and last book was still to come.

Maggie ...please, please, please...from the bottom of my heart I beg you...FINISH THIS TRILOGY !

I wonder why the release date got pushed back so much? It went from 2013 to 2014 now 2015.I can't wait any longer for this.I really hope it comes out sooner, and it's as good as Ballad too.
